MUMBAI: Even five hours after Enforcement Directorate (ED) began questioning businessman Raj Kundra in connection with a Rs 2000-crore Bitcoin scam, the law enforcement agency is still continuing to probe him. Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty's husband, Raj Kundra, was on Tuesday summoned in connection with the scam.
The questioning began at 11:30 am and is likely to be revolving around Amit Bharadwaj, an accused in the case. Kundra's name came up when Bharadwaj was being questioned. The Income Tax Department had recently sent notices to bitcoin users who were dealing in bitcoins worth Rs 1 crore or more daily. These names were also forwarded to ED and a probe into possible money laundering and fraud was initiated.
It is learnt that many well-known names - especially those of Bollywood celebrities - may come up during investigations.
